After a long courtship between the institutions, the Eno Foundation became a legally connected associate of Yale in April 1933 without ceremony or fanfare. The University approved a contract of cooperation in furthering purposes and objects of the Foundation. The primary duty of the Foundation was to study and investigate prob­lems of highway traffic regulation and related subjects in association with Yale. The University was to assume no financial responsibility, but was to have an oversight role regarding the Foundation’s finances. And the Founda­tion would bear the clerical costs that Yale might have in the joint arrangements. The Foundation, on the other hand, would retain its autonomy and Mr. Eno reserved the right to rescind or terminate the agreement during his lifetime.
